    About a week ago I noticed that my alpha roo had some white spots on his comb. I also found some on one of this ladies. We have about 20 chickens and from what I can see they are the only two with spots and neither seems bothered by them. Today I was out feeding them and I heard/saw one of the other hens make a "clearing the throat" sound. I saw her do it again a few hours later and noticed that she was laboured in her breathing. I scooped her up and moved her to a dog crate in the shop. She seems find otherwise and doesn't have any spots.

    Does this sound like the wet pox? How do I tell if she has spots inside her throat? What can I do for her?

    Any information would be truly helpful:)

    x 2 post on the emergencies thread, in the fullest detail you can come up . It is very important because the ER folks can't witness what your flock is doing. I hope they will be able to provide answers for you quickly.
